Sony ericsson please please please stop inflicting this rubbish on us please just concentrate on making tv, and playstation
EDGE is an updated form of 2G data transfer. It offers much higher transfer speeds than standard GPRS, and in the case of the W810 its 236.8kbps (as opposed to 32-48kbps with GPRS).
3G=UTMS, which is being touted as the eventual successor to GSM. This offers data transfer rates of well over 300kbps.
Ken2.5 stated a few weeks ago that UMTS is static - i.e. it cannot eveolve further and the transfer speeds will not increase, but he did say that EDGE is continuously evolving and will get better and better to a point where it equals UMTS or even betters it.
How reliable Ken2.5's info is I don't know, but he is here a lot and is a very knowledgeable fella and I take most things he says as being accurate.
Hope this helps.
what's the difference between 3G and EDGE? some say the 1st is better, some that the 2nd is. So pls and some1 who really knows!
any 1 who likes W810 vote for each n everything 10........... PLZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

U in UK??? If so, I don't reckon we'll get much change out of £300 as soon as it comes out....maybe £279 sim-free if ya lucky, it'll be struggle to get it much cheaper on a PAYG package for at least a couple of months after its release on contract....Carphone warehouse are still charging £204 for the K750 on PAYG for cryin out loud! http://www.carphonewarehouse.com/commerce/servlet/gben-shoppingbasket-GBShoppingBasket
Hm to me it seems easier to buy a W800 and wait an extra 6 seconds for the internet to load. hahahaha. =)
viperkid.. to my opinion, W800 and K750 looks and feels totally different, i can't even say that i am holding two of the same phone. It is only when you put them together, you can know that both are made of the same factor and similar design, but the feels are simply totally different. i believe the same will goes for W810. W810 has a better UI since it can have different style of menu browsing just like W550 and some improvement in software. So in W810 they have put not slightly but rather significant improvement (Netbrowser, EDGE, phonebook, and they put an additional function in the camera that enable to view brighter picture... dunno what they call it). Basically what i found from W810 is like the fullfilness of what W800 or K750 is lacking so far... 500 names in phonebook to 1000 names (same with most common phone) and especially EDGE---> I dunno how to use this and i actually don't really care whether my phone has this or not. Perhaps you can say slightly better improvement if you are talking about upgrading from K750 to W800, but W800 to W810 is totally different story. This phone will be released very very soon because the improvement is not that much as well although quite significant. K800 will be announced very soon, QVGA camera, bluetooth A2DP, 3MP and so on and so on...
well well well. i wonder how much this toy is gonna cost once it hits the market?
i guess SEK 4000 or USD 500 or maybe more. However, this phone is definitely for the TREND EXTREMISTS like myself.
yeah if dont mind being bulky can consider w900 cause it offer 30fps video n better screen cause QVGA. also bigger screen. got 3g nice swivel design....
Get this phone if u comparing between 800 n 810.. but if u want multi purpose wait for p990 it's a pda phone.
For 810 i'm sure there's some improvement in e user interface n sure e sound will be louder better. also maybe better video compare to 800. so does this help?
Get e W810 if u want louder music playback with e in-built speaker n better interface cause sony ericsson always come out with better interface. W800 if ur budget is e main concern.
Leave viperkid alone he just come here n disturb. thanks stirker n all those who supported SONY ERICSSON phones i'm too a great supporter of sony phones n i'm getting P990 soon when it's release n i'm sure that phone will make more ppl believe more in SONY products.
To me SONY always makes good phone cause there'll be improvement in any product coming out in e market. There's no cover for W810/W900 camera cause imo there's no need for a cover. It's well protected by a piece of glass.
Phone mem. abit low here but it's more then sufficent to store some ringtones then e rest of e files will go to e ext. mem stick.
Those who own S.E. phones will also realise that their sound quality(as in listening to music using e in-built speaker) is much superior than any phone in e market right now, u'll realise how clear it is in voice quality n effects. Yeah speaker for listening to normal conversation can get abit low here but it's acceptable to me.
Go for W810 if budget is tight to get W900 imo W810 will cost less then W900 cause it's in e 'middle' series of e W series phone. N surely it's a good quality phone~~!!!!
